HKU’s partner institutions worldwide offer a wide range of summer programmes, which are categorised under Short-term Abroad Opportunities (SAO).

Students can apply for SAO programmes with the host institution directly through registration with IAO, which is open until July. Applicants should submit the application before departure to the programme using the official admission issued by the SAO programme.
